Here’s the sideshow that steal’s a week of headlines, Paulie Malignaggi managed to steal the latter.
And he's not actually finished yet.
The 36-year-old champ from New York has unleashed on the UFC star, his camp, his millions of fans and Dana White ahead of the highly anticipated fight of the year.
Simultaneously, the debate is over for the gloves that are going to be allowed in the August 26 fight – and a big amount of money has been going to “”Money”, Floyd Mayweather.
Former super lightweight and welterweight world champion Malignaggi was enraged at the McGregor camp, over the treatment that was given to him after being invited to the camp to spar.
Malignaggi blast at the “cult-like” fans and camp of McGregor for allegedly misrepresenting their 12 rounds of sparring.
Malignaggi told Yahoo Sports that he was not beaten by McGregor as said and claimed by the McGregor’s camp, it was way far from the truth.
The released footage was on UFC chief Dana White's – (firmly in McGregor’s corner) twitter account of the Irishman knocking Malignaggi down with a left hook.
To Him, the footage manifest a push which he said that it came in the 12th round of the spar when he completely spent. To White, McGregor and his legions of fans, it shows the fighter’s awesome power and knockdown ability.
Malignaggi told Yahoo Sports, “What they’re doing is so adorable and cute.”
“They’re trying all these sales tactics. His fan base is adorable and cute because they’re jumping all over it. Everything they send, they’re jumping all over it. They’re so happy to hear this new that he’s supposedly doing great and the video shows this and that’s how it is.”
Malignaggi kept a dramatic character assassination for White.
Malignaggi said, “Dana being the fake guy that he is, he tried to come up to me and say, ‘Hey man, good work. I just brushed him off because he’s not somebody that I like.”
Floyd Mayweather against Conor McGregor is going end a talkative rival, and least that we know is that he’s going to bet on himself.
